Last Night, My Lads – Hymn

0

Last night, my lads, we toiled away,
Oh, so drearily, drearily;
But we weighed our anchor at break of day,
Oh, so cheerily, cheerily.

Refrain:
So keep up heart and courage, friends!
For home is just in sight;
And who will heed, when safely there,
The perils of the night?

Just so we toil through trouble’s night,
Oh, so wearily, wearily;
But we sail with joy at morning light,
Oh, so cheerily, cheerily.

Though storm clouds come oft ere we land,
Oh, so readily, readily;
Still we trust as guides the Helmsman’s hand,
Oh, so steadily, steadily.

When we reach heaven’s shore ’twill be
Drear, no, nevermore, nevermore;
Not a toil nor care, but jubilee
Cheer, yes, evermore, evermore.
